NSF/NBER/CEPR workshops on The Evolution of the Global Economy

Cambridge MA
2 March 2007

In July 2006 NBER and CEPR were pleased to announce funding by the NSF to support U.S.-based researchers to attend international cooperative workshops involving research related to the broad theme of "The Evolution of the Global Economy" (EGE). The first EU-based EGE workshop was held October 13-15, 2006 in Lund, Sweden. The second US-based EGE workshop will be held on Friday, March 2, 2007, at the National Bureau of Economic Research, 1050 Massachusetts Avenue, Cambridge, MA 02138. This date has been chosen to synchronize with the NBER DAE program meeting which takes place the following day. It is hoped that participants from both meetings will benefit from the spillovers. Applications for the EGE sessions are welcomed from those seeking to present work in comparative economic history, applied international finance and trade, institutions, political economy, long-run economic growth/development, and other related fields. Please submit papers by email to: Kevin H. O'Rourke Alan M. Taylor NOTE: The deadline for submission is January 1.
